The Donkey, voiced by Eddie Murphy in the movies, is one of the characters that has stolen the hearts of many children – and their parents. The Shrek Donkey is sidekick to the big green ogre, but often his attempts to help out do more harm than good. Still, Donkey is a “fool” type character in the story and provides a lot of comic relief through his carefree attitude, silliness and his undying devotion to his ogre friend.
Lord Farquaad is the pint-sized villain of the Shrek story. Farquaad is the butt of many jokes, especially because of his height. Farquaad’s mission is to get rid of all the fairytale creatures from his kingdom – and that includes the ogre in the swamp and the talking Donkey. Farquaad is the enemy of the imagination and a character many kids love to hate.
Other favorite Shrek side characters who pop up in the story include the Gingerbread Man and Pinocchio, amongst a huge cast of other fairytale creatures. This show has become wonderfully popular precisely because of its combination of visual and musical entertainment with so many much-loved characters from stories that span generations. Don’t miss this opportunity to relive your children when the Shrek show arrives in Austin.
